Crises in the Balkans: Views from the Participants


Written from the perspectives of regional and international participants, this book explores the causes and consequences of chronic conflicts in the Balkans. Assessing the likelihood of a region-wide conflagration, the contributors examine the ongoing carnage in Bosnia, the looming crisis over Kosovo, the dispute between Greece and Macedonia over the latter's name, and the ongoing tension between Greece and Albania. This comprehensive volume includes separate chapters on the major actors in the Balkans: Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Hungary, Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, Germany, Russia, the United States, the EU, NATO, and the UN. Each case study provides the historical background and current concerns of that actor, analyzes its policies, and weighs future scenarios.
